COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for the Plzeňský Prazdroj.
Master polotmavý je vynikající 13% prémiové speciální pivo vyvážené chuti s jemnou karamelovou hořkostí a barvou, originál, ve kterém se snoubí tradiční mistrovství našich sládků s tajemným uměním neznámého mistra. Proslulý žatecký chmel dodává pivu jedinečné aroma, nejlepší světlý slad s karamelem pak jemně karamelovou chuť a tmavší barvu.

DSG (8627) - Tel Aviv, - AUG 9, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2012 Re-rate 3/10/12: Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. A few months past it’s BBD. Amber-colroed. Aroma of malt, caramel and cardboard. Sweet and stale flavor with a bit of spicy alcohol. Light to medium-bodied. Not so nice. Too old - not calculated. 4/3/3/2/6=1.8

(6/26/08) Draught at Na Parkanu in Plzen. Clear reddish-amber. Toasted malt and some caramel in the aroma. Sweet toasty flavor, a bit bready, with some caramel. Medium-bodied. 6/4/6/3/12=3.1

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Expressive caramel biscuits cleanly purport ideas of refreshment and long evenings in this professionally constructed, balanced Polotmavé.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A mountain of foam establishes its kingdom atop the shiny copper translucence.
-Some wooden hop bitterness cleverly interrupts the malty reign.
-These hops only seem to appear in the last half of the sip.
-The body is healthy and the level of residual sugars maintains a pleasant middle ground.

On tap at Na Parkanu, Plzen.

Bottle at James’ house for the End of History tasting. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet grainy apple notes on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet and grainy. Not much going on. More sweetness into the finish.

KyotoLefty (7880) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle in my hotel room in Prague. Nutty, caramel aroma. Pale amber color. Minerally, watery flavor with some caramel and a slightly dry finish. Rather useless, really.

laiti (7643) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2013
Draught @ Prague Airport. Rated on 20.07.2009
Aroma is sweetish with malty notes, some berries and syrup. Flavour is sweet with malt, slight roastiness, some berries and hints of chocolate. Feels artifical. Actually this is quite close to Kozel Cerny 10°.

on tap at na parkanu and at zach’s pub. a pretty average vienna really, mild nutty nose, slightly citric bitterness, quite boring. this is what beer designed by a committee tastes like.
